The company report is an opportunity to summarise the important aspects of your company. It is an important

record of what you have learned from the initial set up of your company, your product, marketing and financial

information on the company, achievements and lessons learned along the way.

Throughout the Junior Achievement Company Programme student workbook, there are detailed guidelines

on how to prepare the company report. Below is a summary of what is required but please refer to the student

workbook.

Include the following details on the cover page:

1. Name of company

2. Name of school

3. The time period for which your company was/is in operation

The report should contain the following sections:

Section 1 – The Executive Summary

Section 2 – Product/service Description
